Label: Bill Atkinson, Glen of Michigan

Interesting note on this label from the Vintage Fashion Guild:
"Bill Atkinson was an architect who got into the fashion business purely by accident. He made a square dance outfit for his wife from eight bandannas. The outfit was so popular that he started making them to sell. This venture was very successful, and he soon found a housedress maker, Glen Manufacturing, to make the skirt. This was in 1950. For twenty years, Glen of Michigan made Bill Atkinson’s casual sportswear designs. In 1973, Atkinson started a new line, Bill Atkinson, Ltd., which lasted until the early 1980s".

Excellent vintage condition.
